Wedding Vows


So, Tommy and I are debating on pre-written vows versus writing our own. Today, I’ve been surfing the internet looking for non-corny, pro-Tommy/Kathy type vows. Many vows got crossed off within a line or two. Just when I thought I’d never find something that perfectly encapsulated what I want to convey, I stumbled across a this site with the very concise vow of: OMG, WTF my BFF is now my new husband!

Why would I even need to look further??

Seriously though, anyone know of good sites for non-traditional vows?

At least you have an officiant–I’m a little behind. 😉 It’s so tempting to go with a “do you?” yeah. “and do you?” yeah. “done.”

Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in the
journey ahead and through all the years,
May happiness be your companion and
your days together be good and long upon the earth.

You cannot possess me for I belong to myself,
But while we both wish it, I give you that which is mine to give
You cannot command me, for I am a free person,
But I shall serve you in those ways you require and
the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand.

I pledge to you that yours will be the name
I cry aloud in the night and the eyes into which I smile in the morning.
I pledge to you the first bite of my meat and the first drink from my cup
I pledge to you my living and my dying, each equally in your care
I shall be a shield for your back and you for mine
I shall not slander you, nor you me
I shall honor you above all others, and
when we quarrel we shall do so in private and
tell no strangers our grievances

This is my wedding vow to you
This is the marriage of equals.
